(KSL News) The Utah Down Syndrome Foundation celebrated 30 years today. A special guest was on hand for the occasion.

You might remember him as Corky from the television show Life Goes On. But actor Chris Burke came to town to sing.

"We're here to perform a concert tonight for these wonderful people with disabilities," he explained.

Burke's trio performed for a group of young adults with Down syndrome. The performance is part of a yearly dinner and dance for twenty-somethings with Down syndrome.

"We dance the whole night through till 10:30," said Becca Winegar.

The Down Syndrome Foundation supports individuals and families with down syndrome.
